Intel is reportedly developing wearable AR headset

According to a Wall Street Journal (WSJ) report, bigwig chip maker Intel is preparing to mark its foray into the digital reality arena with a wearable headset for delivering augmented-reality (AR) experiences.

The report, based on the information shared by unidentified sources familiar with Intel’s plans, has revealed that the wearable AR headset being developed by Intel will exploit the company’s 3D imaging technology called RealSense.

The use of RealSense 3D camera technology by Intel in its wearable AR headset will essentially add more visual capabilities to the device; thereby distinguishing it from most of the other augmented/virtual reality headsets from other companies like Google, Samsung, Microsoft and a number of AR/VR startups.

As per the WSJ sources, Intel will probably offer the design of its under-development AR headset to other manufacturers, instead of marketing its own hardware to end users.

Meanwhile, about Intel’s reported efforts in the AR arena, Brian Mullins – CEO of Los Angeles-based startup called Daqri – said that “there is an awareness at Intel that they didn’t play as big a role in the mobile space as they would like,” and added: “They understand that wearables and augmented and virtual reality are the next big platform.”
